At least 35 Jamhuri High School students are nursing injuries after students clashed emerged on Tuesday night over religious affiliations.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, a student who sought anonymity faulted the administration for the incident accusing them of bias.

In a detailed summary, another student who was also offering first aid to injured colleagues, said that the knives used in the late night attack were allegedly brought into the school by one group of the warring students.

It is alleged that the students have different libraries and toilets.
